Congratulations to Ministry of Food and Drug Safety @TheMFDS, Republic of Korea🇰🇷, to have achieved maturity level 4, the highest level in WHO’s classification of regulatory authorities for medical products bit.ly/3EMDELY Image
WHO’s assessment of regulatory authorities is based on an evaluation tool that checks regulatory functions against a set of over 260 indicators, e.g. product authorization, testing of products, market surveillance and the ability to detect adverse effects bit.ly/3EMDELY Image
Only about 30% of the world’s regulatory authorities have the capacity to ensure medicines, vaccines and other health products are produced to required standards, work as intended and do not harm patients bit.ly/3EMDELY Image

Basic #crypto hygiene and tips and tricks for those in #Singapore, a 🧵

After FTX imploded, our choices of fiat–crypto ramps got limited here in Singapore.
These are still active and work directly with Singapore banks: Independent Reserve @indepreserve, @coinhako, @cryptocom, @LunoGlobal. @indepreserve seems to have lower fees overall.

If you buy/sell $USDT or $USDC, don’t trade directly SGD <-> USDT/C, you’ll get a bad exchange rate. Get a multicurrency acct w\@dbsbank and register an acct with a broker (I use @IBKR and @SaxoSingapore)…

Singapore's finance minister and deputy prime minister, Lawrence Wong @LawrenceWongST said on Thursday that the collapse of the crypto exchange FTX has raised "very serious allegations that amount to potential fraud." #Singapore #Business
Recent developments in the crypto market, according to Lawrence Wong have reinforced the city-state's position that it was "on the right track" in focusing on digital assets innovation, but also taking a strong stance against crypto speculation and trading by retail investors.
FTX was once one of the world's largest exchanges, but it has filed for bankruptcy after a spectacular collapse in recent weeks. According to reports at least $1 billion in client funds went missing from the failed crypto firm.

🧵 on Twitter and Mu*k, from the perspective of a journalist/activist from #Singapore (me)

1/ I am from a country that has significant issues with civil, political, and human rights. But my government also puts significant effort into public relations to bolster its reputation.
2/ I'm constantly meeting people who have no idea that, in #Singapore, you can be arrested for holding up a placard in public. That 11 men have been executed this year for #drugs. That we have serious issues with press freedom and media diversity.
3/ In this context, Twitter has been, and is, an extremely valuable tool in allowing me — a freelance journalist and activist with limited resources and no big institutional backing — to talk to people outside of #Singapore about our problems.

#SARSCoV2 #Variants are collecting identical sets of concerning mutations (aka #Convergent #Evolution)

Latest threat is from the recombinant lineage #XBB (BJ.1/BM.1.1.1), the most immune-evasive #COVID strain seen yet

H/T @ErinMPrater @FortuneMagazine
XBB (aka #Gryphon) is the most immune evasive lineage.

BA.2.75* sub-lineages bind better to host ACE2 receptor.

XBB could pick up addition mutations to optimize its ACE receptor binding!

#Population control In the 1950s and 1960s, much of the attention of eugenicists was focused on the new political interest in planetary population control. A new vocabulary anchored by the prospect of a “population bomb” (the title of Paul Ehrlich’s bestselling 1968 (1/18)
book) emerged as it became clear that the technologies of World War II had improved both life expectancy and in some instances infant mortality. The advent of antibiotics and pesticides, nutritional gains derived from food rationing and more ef f i cient agriculture, (2/18)
